look at the top of page its true and already been talked about for hours
Wow hearing that from you says something.
* Wait a minute..... Can't believe I fell for that.
Wait... you took him seriously?
welcome to the party pal
Corrected that as you wrote haha
You need a ton of talent/coaching to pull it off like you said earlier.
Coaches need to be able to anticipate what the offense is going to do or they get roasted. They need to prepare their players for all kinds of eventualities. Simple does not cut it when surprise is key.
Then you need corners that can win at man. DT that can clog the run. Back 7 players that can blitz. Secondary players that can anticipate and drive on throws.
Jones is a priority with Nolan. Then we have corners. We have Brown, Chido, and Smith who can blitz. We need ballhawks particularly at S and DT that can anchor.
What is encouraging is our blitz success rate the past couple of years has been really good.
The drafting of Hill was already a huge mistake but know looks 10 times worse. He was a Marinelli style DT and a reach due to be a lazy head case. They should have seen this coming and just drafted the no brainer safety that would fit fine in any scheme brought by whoever the next HC/ DC was. Hill likely won’t fit in the new defense and will likely never make an impact in Dallas. A complete waste. Not having Watt and Thornhill moving forward when they were complete no-brainer picks should be enough to get someone fired. I can’t stand that They fixate on who they will draft and take then no matter who falls to them unexpectedly. If they had half a clue putting their board together and just stuck to it, Watt and Thornhill would be starters on a vastly better defense. But then again, Garrett might have been extended so maybe it’s for the best.
I think the key could be blitzing LB's. I think back to Wades most successful year here calling defense (2009), and he made life hell blitzing James and Brooking. We were very successful that year at disrupting the pocket off the snap. I think something similar could he successfull in 2020. Smith and LVE were very potent on the blitz in 2018. If we can get more out of the DT position, that could be a recipe for success
True,but I like what I’m hearing so far.
I practically guarantee you Hill is stoned off his rocker, binge watching Scooby Doo with two bags of Doritos and FunYuns on his belly right this second.
I watched the videos also. Love them all. Especially, McCarthy turned his barn into full-blown Analytics department. Reminds me of Silicon Valley startup.
I especially liked how he answered the fact about him "lacking football knowledge." He acknowledge the criticism and stated that is why he dedicated building his analytics department to figure out what works and what doesn't. He didn't blame anyone - not even pointed the finger on Rogers.
I think McCarthy learned from his mistakes and used that as an opportunity to improve and get better as a coach.
Not overly impressed with either hire but I'll hope for the best. I haven't seen a single good argument for why this is a good hire other than it's not Marinelli or some generalizations.
I’m excited for Nolan and McCarthy. More Nolan. Hope they hold these players accountable.
Dallas also had clueless corners since the days of Rob Ryan.
Note that Richard's first year non of our DBs were clueless and made plays. I think the coaching philosophy of past DCs set in and influenced the team's playing abilities.
This will be the mother of all turnovers
.....does Jaylon still get to sweep..?? lol.........
Next year. Probably the year after too but I don't want to get ahead of myself.
ROFL... they spun that enough for everyone!!!
His defenses were horrible there and virtually everywhere else he's been.
12- 24th TOTD
14- DEAD LAST - 32nd TOTD
15-17th TOTD (I'm actually not sure if this was him)
Maybe McCarthy actually like's Moore. We haven't heard anything from Jerry about this which is a good thing.
